Ricardo Low Carbon Vehicle Research CentreOctober 15, 2012
The development of the Ricardo Vehicle Emissions Research Centre (VERC) has been selected for part-funding under the £1.05 billion third round of the UK Government’s Regional Growth Fund.
The project is aimed at creating or safeguarding thousands of jobs over the long term, benefitting 130 projects and leveraging £6 billion of private sector investment.
The centre will be an important enabler for the development of the next generation of clean, low carbon vehicles. It will be capable of researching and developing emission reduction technologies and incorporating these technologies into hybridized, 4-wheel drive, and advanced technology vehicles.
